Elmer’s Messenger – My first Firebase chat app

View App

After attending a couple of GDG events, I finally decided to create my first app using Firebase. The result is a chat app from their Codelab page which you can easily build yourself too as long as you follow the steps. I didn’t exactly like how it looked so I made some adjustments and added some improvements:

  • 07/05/17 – Sound notification which triggers when you receive a new message from other users
  • 07/05/17 – Timestamps to know when the message was sent
  • 07/06/17 – List of signed-in users in the site
  • 07/06/17 – User status (online, idle, away)
  • 07/06/17 – “is typing…” message under name
